Those with straight hair often get annoyed by the limited options that they might have when creating a cute party hairstyle. This hair type is actually one of the most versatile; you really don’t have to deal with frizz, for one thing! To be on the safe side, use a dime-sized amount of hair serum smoothed on your locks, making sure to seal in the top of your crown where flyaways and cowlicks might be prevalent. Then either go for a high-up ponytail, updo or simply wear a stylish headband for a put-together and easy look.
